What is a liner in welding?

The liner is both one of the simplest and most important components of a MIG gun. Its sole purpose is to guide the welding wire from the wire feeder, through the gun cable and up to the contact tip. If it is not performing this task properly, the gun is virtually worthless.

Why do my welds keep bubbling?

Watch your voltage / arc length. The further away the gun is from the weld site, the more likely air and gas will seep into the weld puddle causing bubbles to form which will in turn make a weak weld. Preventing porosity in your weld will overall increase the durability and purity of your weld.

Why do my welds look burnt?

Burn-through, which happens when the weld metal penetrates completely through the base material, is especially common when welding thin materials less than 1/8 inch or about 12 gauge. Excessive heat is the main cause of burn-through, and this can be fixed by reducing voltage or wire feed speed.
